Kindergarden and 8th Grade Pen Pals

Kindergarten students at Thomson and Sargent have 8th grade pen pals at Chenery Middle School in Belmont. Each kindergarten student drew a self portrait and a family portrait using crayons for the 8th graders. The 8th graders are using those drawings as inspiration for their current mixed media collage and drawing project that they are working on. They are using the shapes, forms, and colors based on their pen-pals drawings.

In return, each kindergarten student received a letter from their pen-pal. The 8th graders drew much of the correspondence so the kindergarten students can look at the pictures and hopefully get a sense of their pen-pal.
